EEL120 Social Context of VET (8)
Enrolment restrictions: Students who have previously completed EEC100 or EEL220 or EEL445 are not eligible to enrol in this subject.
The subject introduces students to the concepts of society and the individual, and their interrelationship. A sociological and historical approach is adopted that emphasises the development of the modern industrial and post-industrial state and its complex relationship with social collectives and individuals. Emphasis is placed on the role of social institutions in shaping individual and collective difference. The social and economic factors which influence the nature and role of VET are also covered.
